The WWE brand extension draft is tonight on SmackDown Live with the futures of the entire WWE roster being decided.

Rumors have been flying about regarding which superstars are ending up on which rosters and WWE fans have been second guessing themselves all day about which superstars could make surprise returns and shock everyone.

The WWE have already made one huge change to their plans, however, as Brock Lesnar will no longer appear on the show tonight.

According to a report from Ringside News, Lesnar has been pulled from SmackDown Live after his UFC 200 fight against Mark Hunt, which he failed a drugs test for.

Interestingly, that positive test isn't the reason for the WWE not wanting him at the Draft. 

According to the report, the WWE aren't scheduling Lesnar at the Draft anymore because they don't want to use up one of his appearances.

Lesnar's appearances in the WWE are precious and to have him use one up to just come out after his name is announced and stand on the stage for 10 seconds is probably not the greatest uses of Lesnar.

The Beast Incarnate is a valuable commodity in the WWE Universe and it seems like Vince, Triple H and co have made a big decision. 

Don't worry, Lesnar is still going to be drafted tonight. And whoever out of RAW and SmackDown gets him, will have a bonafide superstar.
